Enjoy a portrait sitting from life! Rusty Zimmerman paints your portrait in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Rusty Zimmerman is a portrait painter in Brooklyn, NY. He's the man behind THE FREE PORTRAIT PROJECT: Crown Heights, a project that paints a portrait of a place through its people. Giving 200 portraits to residents of Crown Heights, Brooklyn in one year, I render a physical record of the neighborhood as it cycles through gentrification. In doing so, I explore the commonality of seemingly disparate communities within one neighborhood, craft a time capsule amid rapidly shifting demographics, promote community engagement, and quietly up-end the tradition of portraiture being reserved for a wealthy few by giving these paintings to their subjects at no cost.
